The largest city of Madhya Pradesh and its commercial capital. It is also the hub that drives most of the activity in central India, be it political, commercial, educational, entertainment, or trend-setting fashions. Being surrounded by large and important industrial towns and the proximity to Mumbai gives it just gripe. No wonder, it has acquired the sobriquet of Mini Bombay.
Indore in Madhya Pradeshis a city young and it shows too. Modern high-rise buildings are replacing the old spacious colonial-style bungalows, chic shopping malls sporting global brand line the wide avenues, entertainment options have broadened to amusement parks to choice in wining and dining to discotheques and bowling alleys and more. The city has attracted investment in medical facilities also and a number of good specialty hospitals now service the populace and, surely, the downtown to has shifted from around the palace of the erstwhile royalty to the commercial hub of the city, Regal chowk. Indore is amongst the fastest growing cities in the country.
